Why should I leave a gift to Sheffield Futures?
Few charities have such a strong connection to place within a community as Sheffield Futures, which has been part of the fabric of Sheffield since its inception in 1995. Our well-known mental wellbeing service, Door43, is a nod to our home, Star House, at 43 Division Street. For over 25 years we’ve been here for young people: from crisis intervention to social activities and homework clubs to employment support.
Beyond our city-centre base, we work across Sheffield, particularly in the 10% most deprived area which are characterised by high rates of poverty, overcrowding, unemployment, English as a second language, and some areas having specific challenges including violence, criminal and sexual exploitation.
Sheffield has huge disparities, including a 14 year life expectancy gap across just 10 miles. It is widely acknowledged that there is a mental health epidemic among young people, and the issues experienced and presented by young people are increasingly complex.
Whether it’s funding counselling, youth clubs, employment work or developing new spaces in Star House, a gift in your Will would be transformational for the young people of Sheffield.
We’re always happy to answer any questions and to talk to you about your plans and wishes.
